Channels, pumps, and exchangers in the gill and kidney of freshwater fishes: their role in ionic and acid-base regulation.
In freshwater fishes, the gill and kidney are intricately involved in ionic and acid-base regulation owing to the presence of numerous ion channels, pumps, or exchangers. This review summarizesExpand

A stretch-activated anion channel is up-regulated by the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum.
A recent study on malaria-infected human red blood cells (RBCs) has shown induced ion channel activity in the host cell membrane, but the questions of whether they are host- or parasite-derived andExpand

Plasmodium falciparum Regulatory Subunit of cAMP-Dependent PKA and Anion Channel Conductance
Malaria symptoms occur during Plasmodium falciparum development into red blood cells. During this process, the parasites make substantial modifications to the host cell in order to facilitateExpand

Erythrocyte peripheral type benzodiazepine receptor/voltage-dependent anion channels are upregulated by Plasmodium falciparum.
Plasmodium falciparum relies on anion channels activated in the erythrocyte membrane to ensure the transport of nutrients and waste products necessary for its replication and survival after invasion.Expand

Local Membrane Deformations Activate Ca2+-Dependent K+ and Anionic Currents in Intact Human Red Blood Cells
Background The mechanical, rheological and shape properties of red blood cells are determined by their cortical cytoskeleton, evolutionarily optimized to provide the dynamic deformability requiredExpand

Ion channels in human red blood cell membrane: actors or relics?
During the past three decades, electrophysiological studies revealed that human red blood cell membrane is endowed with a large variety of ion channels. The physiological role of these channels, ifExpand

Anion conductance of the human red cell is carried by a maxi-anion channel.
Historically, the anion transport through the human red cell membrane has been perceived to be mediated by Band 3, in the two-component concept with the large electroneutral anion exchangeExpand

Electrophysiological studies of malaria parasite-infected erythrocytes: current status.
The altered permeability characteristics of erythrocytes infected with malaria parasites have been a source of interest for over 30 years. Recent electrophysiological studies have provided strongExpand

Anionic channels in malaria-infected human red blood cells.
As the intraerythrocytic stage of the human malarial parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, matures, the plasma membrane of the host red blood cell (RBC) becomes increasingly permeable to a variety ofExpand

Plasmodium falciparum-induced channels.
To survive within a red blood cell, the malaria parasite alters dramatically the permeability of the host's plasma membrane (allowing the uptake of essential nutrients and the removal of potentiallyExpand
